I have been planning and saving for this trip for 4 years. It will be me, my sis and your 4 daughters (2 ea). I have always wanted to stay at FQ more than any other Disney resort and was thrilled when sis got FD PIN and we booked at FQ.

Then the announcement came out the POR was going to start testing MD/FP+ in September and FQ is not. So disappointed and I am now questioning my resort choice as POR was my 2 choice. Its too late to change resorts but I feel like my family is missing out on FP+ because of the resort I chose. Still looking forward to the trip, but my excitement sure is diminished. Yes, we will be at WDW but still...

Anyone else checking into FQ in September/October having similar feelings?

Seems like FP+ may roll out to all resorts by November 1.

thanks.
Nope! I'm excited to have one more trip without the FP+ madness. I am really worried about how FP+ and my family are going to get along. We are not uber planners and don't even like making a ton of ADR's so I can't imagine that DH is going to be happy about having to chose ride times in advance.

I am going to enjoy this trip....with freedom. Then I will start wrapping my brain around all of this FP+ stuff for next years trip.

thanks for your response. We can't afford to come back for another 4-5 years so we won't be able to use the new system anytime soon. I really enjoy using new technology.

I hope it rolls out nov 1 for POFQ. I am praying. We go the 8 th. I prefer French quarter because my husband and I like the more quiet romantic ambience . Although through the eyes of a child I know there are more children attractive resorts . So I think it really depends on your type of vaca. If you are doing a family or an adult vaca . Just my opinion POFQ is very serene we love that .

My trip to POFQ is actually with my best friend.

Our hubby's gave us this kid free Food & Wine trip for Mother's Day. With my family, we usually stay deluxe, so I figured this is the perfect time to stay at POFQ, a resort I've wanted to try for a few years.

Oops, should have mentioned when I asked the question, we check in October 19th so if the roll out is November 1, we are out of luck.

OMG! Best wishes for quick healing of your knee, that's got to be tough! And Happy Anniversary!!

This trip was certainly a pleasant surprise, especially since we had just returned from our family trip on 4/28...and then a couple of weeks later to get my present!!!

I can't wait for Food & Wine! It's my first time. We are also going to the MNSSHP!!

My kids are a bit jealous of that one, but we are ever able to go during that time of year because of school.

I am sitting on my porch listening to nothing but the sound of crickets chirping, it's making me homesick for POFQ. I am so looking forward to this trip.....

Looks like we'll be there at the same time!

26 more days!! Can't wait!!

It's so funny, because if this was a family trip, I'd have our packing done by now...since its just me this time, I have put NOTHING together yet.

Just got back late yesterday, had a great time. 4 for 4 for pixie dust, requested top floor of building 4 - got it, as a result of the room request we were upgraded to a garden view, refrigerator worked and never shared a bus with Riverside. I do like Riverside a little better, but all in all FQ was great.

Could you hear the movies at night from your room?

Not at all. We were in room 4307, to be honest it was tough to hear the movies anywhere unless you were right on the lawn in front of the screen, it's pretty quiet.
